A Look at the "Big Picture"

I took Rebecca Robinson off the scroll frame to get a look at how much progress had been made.  The adjustments I struggled with on the bottom section, including re-spacing the honeysuckles and changing/moving the motifs, had kept me focused on just that area.

Nice to see the piece as a whole.  I would feel a lot closer to half way there if the big house was already filled in!  Well, here she is:

The boys are out of school for Summer Break.  I am looking forward to being busy with them and hoping some evenings I will still have enough energy to do some stitching.  My next project is calling to me.  Maybe I can get RR done this month?!!  Seems too optimistic, but hope springs eternal.

Best wishes on all your endeavors,
